Support for Unicode on IBM mainframes

How much support is there for Unicode in the world of EBCDIC? The UTF-EBCDIC
transformation allows Unicode data to be stored on an IBM mainframe. Does
anyone know of further support, e.g. printing? Is there a Double Byte
Character Set which supports Unicode or is UTF-EBCDIC the only way of
storing it?

Thanks in advance,
